For Erjena!

Finally I managed to put a little preview together for Erjena and Dima! I'm totally stormed out under all the shots I've taken. I said I would post 10, but ended up with more! Hard to choose...
For those of you who don't know what Russian weddings are like - the big difference is that groom actually goes to pick up the bride and they walk down the "aisle" in registry office together. It was a very nice wedding and we all had a fantastic time at the party after the ceremony.
Well, I hope you are as happy with the photos as I am :)

Although St Petersburg is an incredibly beautiful city, we didn't go there for sightseeing. I haven't seen my friends for 3 years and with my friends getting married it was the right time to go. When Alex came over to St Petersburg twice I made sure I took him pretty much to every museum, palace and park so he didn't miss out. But when out friends kindly offered to take us with them to a place neither I, nor Alex have been before, we were very excited to go. The town is called Kronshtadt, which is on an island! I was all excited to take some shots of this place but as soon as we arrived there it started raining! We still went to have a look at some military ships and submarins on the pier, but rain was getting worse.

So we got back into car and drove around the island for a bit, there was a fantastic cathedral, very beautiful and very big for this small island (Morskoy Sobor). Anyways, we thought, forget the rain, we can go and have a look inside. Well, it was closed....

So we just stood in it's porch for a bit and I took some shots, the light was just beautiful! I like shooting when it's raining, just don't get a chance to do it very often.

for Gisele

I'm slowly making my way through all the images that need to be edited... I would really help if I stopped shooting but I just can't! Now I have a lot of lot of new ones from the weekend...
These are still from before the holiday, Annie is just 12 days here:
